Family holidays in Spain

Get active this summer with a family holiday in Spain. With 300 days of sunshine a year, a whole host of inclusive activities and a swish Spanish retreat, you won’t be able to pack your case quick enough. 

Join us in Murcia for a family holiday in Spain that you won’t forget. As well as trying out all of the inclusive activities at our brand new Mar Menor Beachclub, you can explore the beautiful surrounding landscape of south-eastern Spain.

Of course, Spain is also famed for its afternoon siestas. So, if your family holidays feature a generous dose of rest and relaxation, you can lounge by our pools, head to the beach or enjoy a gentle paddle along the shore of the lagoon.

Enjoying family holidays in Spain

Family holidays in Spain are a firm favourite with people of all ages. Hot, dry summers mean families can spend quality time together enjoying a vast range of activities in the great outdoors. From the inclusive sports and activities at our beachclub to exploring Spain’s stunning Mediterranean coastline, Spain is not short of intriguing and fascinating outdoor spaces. 

Did we mention the country’s culture, art, history and fabulous food? Tapas is just the beginning of Spain’s culinary talents. But to really immerse yourselves in local life, there’s nothing quite as colourful or mesmerising as a Spanish fiesta. Barely a week goes by in Spain without people taking to the streets to celebrate everything from food to folklore.

Family friendly food in Spain

A day of activities will see you work up an appetite for some flavoursome food to keep you out on the water, exploring or mountain biking through the countryside. Luckily, Spanish cuisine serves up some stunning meals and recipes ideal for active families looking to stay healthy (with the odd treat here and there - Churros are a must!). Head to a local restaurant and pass on the paella and opt for pisto instead. This traditional dish is one of Spain’s best-kept secrets, a simple vegetarian dish - similar to a ratatouille but bursting with flavour.

Our menus also use local, seasonal produce to serve up a mix of Spanish specialities alongside Mediterranean mainstays - so you’ll get a taste of Spain without needing to stray too far if you’d rather get straight back on the water after lunch. 

When you’re done with the activities, there’s no better end to the day than enjoying a Spanish sunset. Head to our rooftop bar for a cocktail or sit on the lagoon shore and watch the sun go down before your evening meal.

Where to stay on a family holiday to Spain

Perched on the shore of Europe’s largest coastal saltwater lagoon, there’s plenty of open water to explore by dinghy, paddleboard or kayak. Thrill seekers can windsurf across the vast expanse of flat, shallow water and sports fans can enjoy playing tennis on brand new courts. Whether you’re learning a new watersport, perfecting your forehand on the tennis court or heading out to explore the local bike trails, you’ll be able to get expert help from our experienced instructors.

Our new hotel is big on style with modern, contemporary rooms. We’ve got your childcare arrangements covered too. Keeping the little ones happy is a major part of a family holiday, so you can expect action-packed kids’ clubs to keep energetic kiddies on the go with fun and games to suit all ages. Our very youngest guests can join the Starfish creche too!
